#EngVocab: Words to Describe Flavor

Good evening! Have you had dinner, fellas? I hope you’ve had one because tonight I’d like to share some #EngVocab related to FOOD. Stay tuned!

The foods we ate have many different tastes. Here are some common words we can use to describe their taste

1) SWEET

It’s used to describe food with a sugary flavor, such as cake, ice cream, chocolate, and sweets.

2)SAVORY

It’s used to describe food with a spicy or salty flavor without being sweet, such as cheddar, lasagne, sandwiches, hamburger, and french fries. Many people misuse salty as savory. Actually, salty is usually used as a negative description when food contains too much salt.

3) BITTER

It ‘s used to describe food with a strong and sometimes unpleasant flavor that is the opposite of sweet, such as coffee, very dark chocolate, beer, and citrus peel.

4) TART

It’s used to describe food with a sharp or sour taste, such as yogurt, lemon, pickles, and berries. Sour is also acceptable, but it often has a negative meaning.

5) RANCID

It’s used to describe food with a strong and unpleasant smell or taste from no longer being fresh, such as non-fresh milk, butter, and meat.

6) SPICY

It’s used to describe food with strong spices and especially ones that cause a burning feeling in your mouth, such as curry, ramen, and rendang.

It’s a wrap for tonight. Thank you for joining me in this session and….. don’t forget to have dinner, fellas! (just in case nobody told you so :p)
